One of the reasons I'm glad to be back to blogging is the fact that blogging is a wonderful way to journal your knitting project.
this pair i found so easy, yes, I did do some swearing do to many mistakes. But that's just me.
The first sock of the pair was finished Feb.21,2009. The reason I remember that is cause that is the day my husband said he was going out for the mail. I said wait let me show you the sock. So I have the finished sock on on foot and the other foot has a different sock on and that is how i spent that evening in the hospital. Cause.................

It was snowing that day, so i followed my husband after a few minutes to make sure he wasn't shoveling. Well yes he did try to shovel and had a heart attack. called 911 and a day later he had open heart surgery. 6 by-pass, yes I did say 6, and a new valve.
And that is the reason it took so long for the other sock to get done.
My husband is recovering nicely, Lucky man to say the least.
The pattern is an easy one. Kaffe Fassett Socks i found on the internet. I used 2 skeins of Regia 4-fach haltbar in crazy color.
I used size 2 DPN's.
Now i'm starting another pair same pattern different color yarn.

Bobbi, you're back!!!! Oh yea! No pressure to stay surfaced, just a little, "I missed you". I'm glad you stopped by. When my PC took its last breath I lost all of my favorites. You're in there now.

Yes, those husbands and their hearts! Mine had his on November 1st, 2007. That was back when they were still using stents if possible....the same day that the controversial reports about stents surfaced actually. Anyway, my hubby had 3 that day, and 4 more 6 weeks later. Gotta love those hubbies and their tickers! Hope yours takes good care of his. Pretty darn important piece of equipment, I'd say. And, welcome back. (And I thought it was because you missed us all - now I see you just want to journal your knitting!!!!) LOL!
